static-get: linux static binaries for lazy people

23 Jun 2015

Lastly I’ve required static versions of common linux utilities, it’s been fun to compile them a couple of times but it gets boring pretty quickly, so I’ve decided to create a repository with all the static recipes I’ve found on Internet (bifrost, morpheus, etc).

Now I can get git static with:

$ static-get git
$ static-get -x git #download and extract in one go
$ sh <(wget -qO- -x git #retrieve the installer, download the target and extract in one go

To get a list of all available packages, you can run:

$ static-get --search

Be aware than using static binaries have its drawbacks, I take no responsability for any damage caused by any binary downloaded with static-get.

That’s it, happy fetching 😋
